Default Great Things About Being Fat on TV tonight

The Bravo channel will be debuting a new show tonight called "Great Things About Being..." The first episode is great things about being fat. The show airs at 10pm eastern time. Here's the link to a preview of the episode. It shows how historically fat bodies were the most desirable. Of course none of us stopped believing that!

I just caught the show!!! It was pretty funny. The only thing I didn't agree with is "The Tuba". I played tuba for three years of my life, and it didn't change how I looked. But hey, it's just for a laugh .
Thanks MissaF for posting the list!!!!

Are all those items self-evident or have the producers been lurking here? I loved the very dressed-up 1930s BBW at the end leading the sisterhood in song...

That was such a cute show! I especially love that they used actual fat people to do the commentary. There were a bunch of gross generalizations, but it seemed to be all in good fun. I'm holding out hope for "Great Thins About Being Fat: Part 2".

IT WAS FABULOUS!!! I grinned like a fool the entire time. Hopefully it'll have outrageous ratings and the Hollywood powers that be will throw more fat-happy shows at us featuring real fat people doing real fun stuff.

My only little gripe is was the 'Great Thing' about how 'hot' chicks dig you. Where were the hot FAT chicks? Yes, hot chicks dig big men, but FAT hot chicks also dig fat hot men. How dare they mention hot women but omit the fat ones.

Ohkay, one more little gripe... Where was Candye Kane??? I KNOW they didn't leave her out because of her porn-past, cuz Anna Nicole is in that same boat, but come on people!!! They named other less-famous fat-female musical talent and omit Candye? Criminal!

Otherwise, fantastic, positive FUN FUN FUN show!!!

The chart used to "prove" the correlation between fatter Americans and a nation-wide decrease in kidnappings was the icing on the cake for that particular joke.

One of the down sides of living here in Canada, is that some of the good TV shows being shown in the states, is not carried up here!

I figured someone had already brought this up! The whole series is lots of fun (Great Things About Being...) - and I'd recommend all of 'em. Bravo's taking a fun, light-hearted approach to these "issues", which, as far as I'm concerned, is VERY welcome
